More About the Author

James Yoseph and Hannah Yoseph, MD are co-authors of a series of books on the dangers of statin drugs for lowering cholesterol. In many of their books, they provide evidence that statins are mycotoxins (fungal toxins) and demonstrate how mycotoxins like statins lower cholesterol, cause cells to die and increase risk of degenerative and autoimmune diseases, including cancer and Lou Gehrig's disease.

The Yoseph series of health-related books have been well received. Their most popular book to date is: How Statin Drugs REALLY Lower Cholesterol (And Kill You One Cell at a Time).

Their various books on statin injury, autoimmune disease, degenerative disease and cancer focus on cellular health rather than medicine of any kind. Their focus is on two main biochemical pathways of cells, which when fully functional, promote cellular health and reverse chronic disease: the metabolic pathway (that makes energy for cells) and the mevalonate pathway (that replicates and therefore renews cells).

Statin drugs block the mevalonate pathway. The Yoseph's repeatedly warn, "Do NOT block the mevalonate pathway!" otherwise cells cannot replicate and die.

All cells die and that is why they replicate. Keep the mevalonate pathway open and optimized. All cells need energy to perform their normal function. Feed the metabolic pathway and keep cell water alkaline, and cells will function normally.

Their repeated message is simple -- but not easy! All of their books are supported by proven and reproducible science that does not require "double blind studies" to prove what is already known.

The Yosephs can be reached at jandhyoseph@yahoo.com and at their web site: http://statinsideeffects.weebly.com.

I am in my 40s with increasing levels of cholesterol, and had a sit down with my family practice physician, who did indicate that based on the levels of especially LDL, that I had an option to start meds with either lipitor or zocor. At the same time, he also had a frank discussion that there is really little evidence that using the statins would actually lead to a decrease in risk of morbidity or mortality, and suggested to control diet and exercise. Within 2 months of reduced carbs and change in diet, my cholesterol levels dropped 40 points, indicative of more diet and without statins. When the research clearly indicates that cholesterol itself is not always the enemy and actually quite necessary for body functions, it is clear that statins may not be all they are cut out to be. Known side effects include neuropathies, cognitive impairment, depression, cancer, pancreatitis etc... and yet, so many of the our physicians say benefits outweigh these specific risks. A must read.

I am ordering this book immediately. I am one of those who have permanent statin muscle damage. All the seven years I took statins, I kept telling the heart doctor they were killing me. He just laughed it off and told me if I didn't want to die I had to take them. Muscle aches, muscle cramps, loss of muscle, a miserable life. No, it was not my imagination. I refused to take them any more. NO,the muscles did not regenerate like some doctors tell you they will. NO more statins and a new doctor,the muscle cramps quit but not the degeneration. Hopefully they won't get any worse, but who knows? It's ten years after starting the first statins, three years since I quit them. Yes, I even had a muscle biopsy, not any easy thing leaving a five inch scar in my thigh. Definite damage,cause, unknown myopathy, possibly statin caused. I know it was caused by statins. I am a big fan of Duane Graveline, MD, who wrote "The statin Damage Crisis and Statin Drug Side Effects and the Misguided War on Cholesterol." He made me aware of the possible statin damage years ago when no doctor would agree they could do damage. He was a big believer of Co-Q10 way back then. Now other doctors are getting on that band wagon. Better late than never. Statins damaged me!

I want to thank James B. and Hannah Yoseph,MD. for this outstanding book, and its incredible and detailed account of the cholesterol/statin story, and the dangerous side effects of statins, of which I am now a victim of! The preface itself is gripping and opened my eyes immediately to the truth! Crestor was my enemy, causing me so much pain in my legs and joints. The pain was so bad that one summer night while jogging, I just fell to the ground! Thinking it was exhaustion, I dismissed it. How wrong I was. Other side effects included memory problems, stuttering, turned my stomach in to mush, could not go to the bathroom, cramps, mood swings, intense irritability, every muscle below my waste was in pain, and sex drive decreased to almost nothing. I was on Crestor for only 8 months and it did all of this...I wish I had read this book prior to being duped in to thinking I was being saved....when in truth, I was being destroyed. This awesome book is a must read for everyone!

"How Statin Drugs Really Lower Cholesterol and kill you one cell at a time, by James B. Yoseph and Hannah Yoseph, MD, has unequivocal proof that statins are deadly and that a major conspiracy promoted their use. The scientists who later received Nobel prizes for their work on statins, Akira Endo, Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein, spent years trying unsuccessfully to resolve the toxicity problem before realizing that what makes statins lower serum cholesterol also makes them toxic.

Statins do not lower serum cholesterol by "inhibiting endogenous cholesterol synthesis" as is widely believed. Statins lower cholesterol by disabling existing reductase, and enzyme in cells that makes mevalonate,the source of "cell foods" (isoprenoids), including cholesterol, that are vital to cell function. Cells respond to statin deactivation of their source of nutrients by producing more reductase, and hence more cholesterol, to meet cellular nutritional needs. Simultaneously, cells increase the number of LDL receptors to provide cells a second source of nutrients. The increased LDL receptors move cholesterol from the bloodstream to cells thereby lowering serum cholesterol while stuffing cells with more cholesterol than they can metabolize. When scientists looked inside statin-treated cells they found crystals of excess cholesterol.

The FDA initially approved statin trials for patients with defective LDL receptors (FH) who have high serum cholesterol. Statins caused a 50% increase in serum LDL cholesterol in patients with 100% defective LDL receptors because the increased cholesterol synthesized by the liver could not be removed from the bloodstream by defective receptors.

This is excellent, thorough and it might save your life and the lives and sanity of your loved ones and friends. I'm not exaggerating. There are some other well written cautionary Lipitor informational treatises, from Malcolm Kendrick, Duane Graveline, Uffe Ravnskov, Barry Groves to name a few, but this book draws it together and gives you of all the information you need to never agree to taking this poisonous genocidal swill of a pill if it is offered to you, or to get off of it if you have already been duped into taking it. Your life and mental health are literally at risk if you take it. It kills, and it maims, but first it drives some of its victims insane. That it has FDA approval is a rotting shame, but get real and don't just accept their word for it. Read this and figure it out for yourself (and the Yosephs have done a spectacular job to help you do so).
I have personally and anecdotally seen the reversal of CHF (congestive heart failure), kidney disease, excruciatingly painful, hobbling gout, depression, confusion and cataracts (the cataracts were already caused by the statin, but hopefully will not recur) by the removal and discontinuation of this one medication. It is death, disease and suffering in one 'little' capsule. And this all happened, the anecdote, to just one person. I also had a relative, died in 2007, die of what I now realize was, and now call Lipitor-induced-CHF-and-kidney-failure! You can read this and get informed and make up your own mind, but I hope you will read and then look around and take notice of the destruction that is happening because of this oh so innocuous looking pill and its ever mounting Universal prescription.
I have to confess that I'm a scientist, so I gobbled it up, but I'm pretty sure it is accessible to everyone who is interested- scienc-o-phile or not. Pass this along. You have nothing to lose by reading it, but your life if you don't. The sequel they should write could be called 'The Statanic Verses'.
